EU achievements

As the weekend comes closer, the media is getting more and more enthusiastic about the achievements of the EU (for a change). The BBC came up with Ten things the EU has done for you (somehow inspired by the popular What has Europe ever done for us? -video) and a guide to the best euromyths.

Unsurprisingly, the EU institutions also want to communicate the success stories. 50 ways forward – Europe’s best successes is the official website of the EU. And the German EU Presidency also celebrates the ‘unprecedented success story‘.

The Independent has a rather entertaining list of 50 reasons to love the EU and a nice comment by Denis MacShane. And because “Lists like this drive the Eurosceptics mad”(Reason Nr. 50!) here is the front page:

  1. I am starting to feel that I have slipped into some parallel dimension. First Newsweek, now the Independent. Maybe it might be possiable to have a REAL discussion about the EU, Europe, and our place in it. Would make a change from the usual Europhobic bile that makes up the bulk of ‘informed’ discussion on Europe!
